Weak Points: None
Mobile MIM is a useful app for medical professionals who need to examine medical images from patients but find themselves without access to a full workstation. The app allows users to upload images from a variety of scans, including X-rays, PET scans, and CT scans. Users can then examine the images within the app, which allows for rotation, focusing, and annotation of the images. The app provides sample data so that users can get a better sense of the app and also provides a full user guide. Additionally, in order to protect sensitive patient data, the app encrypts all downloaded files once a passcode is set up by the user. Mobile MIM is a useful app for those in the medical field, particularly those that find themselves in need of analyzing patient data without access to typical means of examining images.
